Question about Canon PowerShot A70 Digital Camera
My Canon Power Shot A70 turns on just fine. The Canon logo screen appears, then the screen goes blank. I can't see anything. If I press the button to take a picture the flash goes off - it seems like I'm taking a picture, but the screen stays blank. The "picture" I just took does not appear for two seconds either. If I flip to the review mode, nothing appears. If I hold the button at 3 o'clock (one of the four buttons on the back of the camera), the pictures I've taken previously (not the one I've just tried to take) appear. Do you have any thoughts on what might be wrong and how I can fix it? Thanks! The screen is blank after I take a picture. The flash goes off but the camera appears not to have taken a picture.
I have the same problem and was directed to a website that sounds promising: Canon says they will fix the camera if in deed it is the CCD at no charge. Check it out the tn# is 800-828-4040

mine just started doing the same thing a few weeks ago. I had downloaded pixes to the computer, went outside to take picture and it started acting up. strange lines appear on the screen, but the codes are all there, and you can view the pictures that are on the card. no, the card is not full, the batteries are fine. I think it has a virus built in to start trouble so we will go buy a new one!
